This week was good! It hasnt stopped rainning since I last talked to yall (except for today the sun is out) but its so good! The rain here literally pours! like We sometimes gotta dig a little deeper and push through the rain and wind, which the wind is way strong here haha! Hahah it pretty funny sometimes, I love it!
I forgot what day it was but someday this week all of our citas got cancelled and we didnt get into 1 house! Not one!!!! Everyone we talked to and every door we knocked all said it was too cold and rainy outside and it was rainning too hard to talk!
That was a lot of water that day, it just straight up poured non stop! (Im sending pic of me and elder cleverly just sitting in the puring rain) what i realized is theres no such thing as something being waterproof, cause its just not true. Come here and you will see! We put all of our stuff in bags and then put them in our bacpacks! that same day where we were walking down the street and it was pouring rain, I just started laughing cause i was just thinking, Dang this is it right here!, but we never got upset or down and we kept working hard! Next couple of days were way good, we found a couple new investigators, two were old investigators in the area book from like 2010, but theyre named Jose and Carmen! and the other day we went and stopped by and the read a little of the Book of Mormon and and the plan of salvation pamphelet! and they said it is true and the believe i! so now we just gotta get them to church! That is the biggest thing here, getting people to church, it is difficult because everyone is working like 7 to 9 hereª plus when it is really bad weather here it is tough to get to church for people cause no one has cars so everyone is just walking!
Sunday we had stake conference and so a 70 came and spoke which was way good! our mission president and his wife came down and spoke to and its really good! hahh sometimes i have this moment and i am sitting there listening to the person talk and i am just like wow!......This is a different language. Still learning spanish everyday here! I hve a long way to go but it is good! i learn more each day!
also this week we knocked this one door and this ldy answered and she was kinda laughing and about to slam the door and she told us she was apart of a different faith, then we just asked...... Hey would you like to be with your family for eternity! and she sat there for like a minute and didnt say anything and then asked us if it was possible....... then we talked on her doorstep about the plan of salvation for like 15 min! it was so cool, the spirit works and i saw it there in that instance! now we have a return appointment! 
The weeks here are just a day i feel like, so much happens in one day its tough to remmeber it all (Dont worry mommy im writing in my journal everyday) but it is so awesome!
Everything is great here! im learning a lot and having fun! We work realy hard and are obdeient and we are blessed for that, sure there are some tough days but thats life! The great thing about life and the mission is tomorrow theres always a chance to do better!
i love you all and hope you are all doing well and are everyone is into the swing of things with school starting back up! I love you all!!!!! 
Love Elder Wertner
